Isabella's Sketchbook Final Challenge

Welcome Wednesday!

As announced last week, this is our last Design Team Challenge. Due to family health problems
(which may involve an actual move) plus a severe time constraint, Isabella is just not able to continue to produce her beautiful images at this time. The Digi Boutique and this blog will remain open and as time opens for her, she will be adding new images.
Speaking for the Design Team as the Leader - I know that each of us have enjoyed this team so very much. We have an incredible group of talented ladies that each week challenged us all.
(So many times their cards left me speechless! ...not an easy task LOL)
We wish Isabella and her family well.
Thank you Isabella for giving each of us the opportunity to be part of this team.

This last challenge is to "make your own flowers" - no premade flowers for us this week!

So in our farewell and heartfelt appreciation to Isabella, here's my card
please pop over to Isabella's Sketchbook to share in the cards made by the rest of the Team.

my flowers were done using the 6 petal punch (punched three times, cut a petal out of one piece, then two petals out of a second (these pieces are the final centers) and then each section is rolled and set inside the other)..if you want the instructions just let me know and I will do a post with instructions.

 (these are the same flowers that we used to make in grade school - now since I'm almost 60 - does that get me some kind of award LOL)

some of the flowers in the image were pieced, coloring done with Copics RV02, 04, 10, 19, BG0000, BG18 and 75, Tim Holtz dp, Cardstock is GKD's Innocent Pink and All Spruced Up

have blessed day,

Annika said...

Oh wow, my card is a total botch-up compared to yours!! I've always admired those handmade roses. Can't try it though, don't have a single right-shaped punch or die!
It IS wonderful that we'll still get to create together!

Cec said...

This is a knock your socks off card and so special for your last Isabella card. The flower is terrific. I just need to find a punch so I can try it. I am glad we will still be working together too but even if we weren't I have you in my list of sites I follow and I would be lurking about.

Beautiful card Linda. I'm with Olga - instructions please!

Linda Coughlin, the funkie junkie said...

What a beautiful card, Linda! So vintage and feminine looking. Your flowers are awesome and really steal the show here!

Thank you so much for all the hard work and time you put in as Isabella's DT coordinator. This has absolutely been the best DT experience I have had. Everything went without a hitch and everyone was so sweet and talented. Wishing you all the best. I'll be keeping up with your work through my reader and will stop by to say Hi occasionally!
